In response to a query from the media about the Summit’s success, Miller discussed the absence of Russia from the New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration. He emphasized the diversity of views among member states but underscored the importance of the statement issued by the organization. This statement called for the respect of territorial integrity and sovereignty, which directly relates to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The G20 nations collectively declared the “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons” as unacceptable in their New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration. While not explicitly mentioning Russia, they referenced the Bali declaration and reiterated the need for states to act in accordance with the UN Charter’s principles, refraining from using force to acquire territory.

The joint declaration also reaffirmed the G20’s role in international economic cooperation, acknowledging that it isn’t primarily a platform for geopolitical and security issues, even though these can impact the global economy. The member states called for upholding international law principles, including territorial integrity and sovereignty, humanitarian law, and the multilateral system.

The declaration stressed the importance of peaceful conflict resolution, diplomacy, and dialogue in addressing crises and mitigating the adverse global economic effects of the war. It welcomed initiatives supporting a just and lasting peace in Ukraine consistent with the UN Charter’s principles.

This G20 Summit was a significant event, as it marked the first time India hosted it. The Summit, held on September 9-10 in New Delhi, showcased India’s traditions and strengths. During its presidency, India prioritized issues such as inclusive growth, digital innovation, climate resilience, and global health equity. Following India’s presidency, Brazil was set to assume the G20 presidency after Indonesia’s previous tenure.
